“In philately (the study of stamps and postal history and other related items), a cinderella stamp is "virtually anything resembling a postage stamp, but not issued for postal purposes by a government postal administration."
Lead Graffiti is in possession of a nice Rosback perforator, which will produce 24” of holes like you used to see on postage stamps. We want to get it back into action, making stamps that can be used as promotional items, for sale, for play, for fun.
Our letterpress friend, Bill Roberts, used to make them quite often as part of his promotion for new books. Here are a few of the dozens of sheets that he produced.
We want to get back to making stamps. In the early days of trying our perfectionist attitude kept us from doing it because we could never seem to get the lines of holes straight enough.
Anyone interested in helping us solve this problem with a couple of afternoons of testing and redeveloping our system?
The first one below shows what the holes would look like, but I think I positioned the holes in Photoshop. You can control how long the line of holes is. I don’t remember much of the detail from back to 2012 when we were trying this to start, so we pretty much have to start over.
Below that are 2 more layouts for sheet blanks and do not have the holes.
Would be nice to do maybe 10 sheets for every new project (or at least major projects.
We’ve bought about 800 sheets of gummed paper which would work perfect.
